Last weekend’s protest: Walk for Farm Animals

As cows and horses paraded to the American Royal downtown Saturday morning, a group of animal rights advocates marched through Country Club Plaza, intent on ensuring more farm critters live out their natural days in bucolic peace, rather than biding their time before the slaughterhouse.

The annual walk, one of dozens across the country held each fall, raises funds for Farm Sanctuary in up-state New York. For the event organizer, that green expanse prompted a moment of conversion.
